How to measure Blinds to fit recess

This guide will walk you through measuring the inside recess of your window.

You just need:

  • A tape measure
  • A pencil and paper

When you are measuring:

  • Measure to the nearest millimetre
  • Measure to the nearest eighth of an inch
  • Don’t make any adjustments for fittings and headrails
  • Look out for the position of window handles and tile

Outside or inside window?

How you measure depends on where you want your blind to go. It can hang:

  • On the inside of your window (this is called the recess)
  • On the outside your window (this is called an exact fitting)
  • All our blinds can be fitted into the front of your window frame or wall, or into the top lintel.

Use these instructions to measure for all types of blinds. Whatever type of blind you’re measuring, follow our instructions precisely.
Don’t adjust your measurements to allow for fittings and headrails – we do all that for you.
